Man sentenced for lottery ticket stealing spree throughout Seacoast area
Nathaniel Glavin, 35, pleaded guilty to felony theft charges in Rockingham County Superior for stealing lottery tickets from seven stores around the Seacoast area. (JAMES A. KIMBLE/Union Leader Correspondent)
Prosecutors said Glavin would ask for several $20 lottery tickets along with smaller priced tickets after telling a clerk he had just won $5,000. In some cases, he would buy other store items, such as diapers, prosecutors said.
“He told the clerk he won $5,000, and he wanted to celebrate,” Assistant County Attorney Howard Helrich said Tuesday. Glavin asked for several $20 tickets and an assortment of cheaper ones.
When the clerk put away the tickets minutes later, she realized the $20 tickets were gone, Helrich said.
“He claimed he won $5,000 in winning lottery tickets and wanted to buy more,” Helrich said.
Three of the $20 tickets stolen reaped Glavin $190 in combinations, which he cashed in a short time later at another store, according to Helrich.
But he continued to filch $20 scratch tickets over the next few days from an Irving gas station in Newmarket, a Phillips 66 store in Exeter, the Big Apple Store in Portsmouth and a Hannaford store in Hampton.
Public defender Debra Dupont argued for her client to serve a 12-month county jail sentence.
Glavin also apologized for his actions. He pleaded for a lenient sentence and said a prison term would only keep him away from his children.
Judge Marguerite Wageling chided Glavin for using “a sophisticated plan” to steal from area store owners. She said Glavin could have been home with his children during the Christmas holiday instead of committing the thefts.
